    Single outboard 24 Carrera Ss7m

    I have a 1980 Carrera SS7M. Im sure a lot of you guys are familier with the hull. Itís a 24x7 hull similar to a 24 pantera . Same lower hull but a raised deck. It probably weighs more than a Pantera and a lot more than a 24 superboat . I think the hull is around 3000 lbs . It is currently a big block bravo boat but itís empty . I wonít have the time or finances to finish the big block project this year so I was thinking about going with an older single 250 3.0l Merc and see how I like it . Does anybody have any experience setting up a pantera or similar ? I have no idea where I would start with setback or height . From my brief research I think 17Ē setback ? I probably wonít do this but if I find an engine and bracket for the right price I might try it . I have a lot of the Bravo/ big block parts but if Iím happy with an outboard Iíll run that . My guess is it might run about 50 mph with a 250?

    Thanks for the replay Dave , just so I understood you correctly you had a 24 Superboat thAt did 50 mph with a 454, and it also did 50 mph with a 200 outboard? Also what did you mean by 5”? A 5” setback bracket ?
